Thyssen Krupp Aerospace
has announced a three-year extension to its contract with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Canada Aerospace
Under the agreement, which began in 2018, Thyssen Krupp Aerospace manages material for aluminum wing ‘planks’, including procuring, receiving, inspecting, and storing these directly from the mills at its facility in Montreal. The material is machined on demand for just-in-time delivery.
Jürgen Funke, chairman and CEO of Thyssen Krupp Aerospace North America, said: “The continuation of our contract with MHICA is a sign of their confidence and trust in our relationship. Under our ‘Materials as a Service’ approach, we reduce the complexity of MHICA’s supply chain with access to global markets, custom supply chain solutions, material processing, and just-in-time delivery.”
MHI Canada Aerospace, which is located in Mississauga (Ontario), manufactures heavy aero structures for Bombardier, including the Challenger 350 wing and the Global 5500/6500 wing and centre fuselage section.
In addition to performing systems and flight control assembly installations and testing, its facility has a 24/7 supply chain and logistics centre.
Thyssen Krupp Aerospace offers services that range from raw material management to finished parts kitting. The company’s Montreal facilities feature 177,000ft2
of warehouse space and employs around 80 people.
